Following his loss last night to Stefanos Tsitsipas, Roger Federer told the European media clay is likely in his future this year.
After completely skipping the last two years, Federer sounds intent on returning to the surface for the first time since 2016 Rome.
“It’s a bit of a desire. I’m in a phase where I want to have fun and I’ve missed not doing it,” said Federer
“I don’t feel it is necessary to have a big break again.”
Federer of course won the French Open in 2009, so this would also be the 10-year anniversary of that achievement.
And could this part of a “farewell tour” for Federer?
